    Even if it does and they have to eat the losses this year, the owners will still win in the end. They control their payrolls, so theyíll just make up for it in more dramatic cost cutting in future...

    Start times arenít just for attendance, they are for TV. Putting most games on at 10pm Eastern isnít going to help ratings.
